Designed in California, Made for Everyone

The PRO Compression Story

From humble beginnings in a garage to becoming a leading brand of compression apparel, our story began as an idea between golfing buddies to improve socks for everyone.

Born in Competition

The idea for PRO Compression came to co-founder Eric Smith while competing in IRONMAN events.

A big believer in compression apparel for performance and recovery from his days as a triathlete, he felt that athletes in other sports should have access to the same benefits.

He knew there had to be an answer for a better pair of compression socks not just for runners or athletes, but the everyday person as well.

An idea was born!

The Early Days

Teaming up with co-founder Jeff Pennington, the pair felt that they could design a sock that was technical enough for elite athletes but comfortable enough for everyday use by everyone. In 2010, PRO Compression was born!

The company started in a garage with a laptop, printer, and sock prototypes. Fun, excitement, and stress were all part of the late nights and long weekends in the early days of PRO Compression. A few years of hitting the road for athletic events around the country and promoting their socks paid off. A mix of hard work, trial and error, and a little luck have helped us become what we are today.
